For months starting in 2015, a ruptured well at the facility spewed tens of thousands of tons of gas. Roughly 8,000 families in and around the northwest San Fernando Valley neighborhood were driven from their homes, with many complaining of health issues that included cancer, nausea and nosebleeds.
